Popular vote not as decisive

By Tyler Davis

Obama’s victory is basically a done deal, but his lead in electoral votes may not be reflected in the popular vote.

Although the president has almost 90 more electoral votes than Mitt Romney, the each candidate has just about the same number of votes from the general public. Throughout the day, Romney consistently held a slight lead in the popular vote.

This could put liberals in a difficult spot. Many on the left were very vocal about the popular vote/electoral college discrepancy in 2000 that lead to George W. Bush’s election.

All eyes will be on the liberal pundits. If they do address this, will there be the same outcry that there was 12 years ago?
